how will it impact our region and any holiday weekend travel plans? >> mexico you know that will work with us i really believe it. >> a storm of another kind on the campaign trail questions surrounding what exactly went down during donald trump's metering with mexico's president as the two have very different versions of the encounter. >> and caught on camera a convenience store clerk attacked with a hammer and police now need your help tracking down these suspects. >> good thursday morning, to i'm allison seymour. >> and i'm steve chenevey. welcome to fox5 news morning. let's get right to the latest on tropical storm hermine and how it could impact your holiday travel plans many people in florida bracing for the storm headed toward that state right now. you saw a lot of it during the redskins game. it could be upgraded to a hurricane. governor rick scott says it's been awhile since the state has seen a hurricane and is warning people to be ready. >> two storms moving towards hawaii. the national weather service downgraded madeline from a hurricane to a tropical storm but that isn't stopping folks on the big island from being
7:01 am
hurricane lester about a thousand miles from hawaiian islands is expected to be downgraded as well. a little good news. >> good news there. as our president is in hawaii right now. tucker barnes is with us here in the studio with a look at what's happening in storm watch. tuck. >> wow. steve we got lots going on. let's -- i want to quickly touch on local weather. we got rain showers. if you're headed out the door this morning be prepared for rain showers. 76 degrees now in washington. humidity 85 percent. winds out of the north and east at nine. there's you were rain shower activity and again it will be impacting our morning rush hour so just keep that in mind as we get into the afternoon hours. this is a cooler and drier air working in. this is great news that we're finally going get a little relief from all the heat and humidity we've had around here for the last couple days. there's hermine. latest guidance giving it 60 miles per hour winds expected as steve mentioned to intensify perhaps into a minimal hurricane when it makes landfall sometime tonight across the northern tier of florida. and then it's all about the track and the reason we're so focused on it is we're concerned
7:02 am
remnants of this storm system will get awfully close to our region by this weekend and will impact certainly it looks like i guarantee it's going to impact our beach areas and how much rain we get here locally still a question mark. there you go. 60 miles per hour winds. pressure 996 millibars it's moving off to the north-northeast at about 12. all right. so overnight since you went to bed last night this is a big change. the guidance that came in overnight trying to push the storm a little further to the south and east. and if the storm system stays a little further south and east that would mean lesser impact for us locally. we might just have clouds for the day on saturday sunday. i still think we're going to get some rain here in washington but there's going to be a very tight gradient between not a whole lot of rain and a deluge. still unfortunately looks like at the beaches we are guaranteed some very heavy rain, high surf, breezy conditions and unfortunately the potential that this storm system stalls out for days and days and will kind of just beat on the beaches with high surf and continued rain down there.
7:03 am
are we looking a the potentially? potentially five plus inches of rain down at the beaches this weekend so it's any other going to be a great weekend at the beaches. however, if this storm stays a little further east, we may salvage decent weekend in the immediate washington area. we have to stay tuned to the track. how much rain? up to 10-inches. already having flooding issues in florida. that tight gradient as we get into our weekend this will likely shift but you can see the worst will be down at the beaches. plenty more on our forecast. we'll talk local weather, we'll talk weekend coming up in just a couple minutes guys. back to you. >> 7:03 tucker i'll take it from here but we're dealing with big problems on the roads. you have the rain moving in and we have a lot of congestion. right now you're taking a look from skyfox as they zoom in right there. this is 450 in prince george's county. working on getting a tree cleared that fell. single car accident earlier this morning 450 remains shut down between racetrack road and crane highway. you'll need to detour around that one as you can see a very large tree that they're trying to move out of the way.
7:04 am
now. 66 on the eastbound side quite a big accident scene in the process of clearing blocking the right shoulder. the right lane has reopened but as you can see traffic really heavy at 28. now this was already in a delay because of congestion. wet roads out there. you're basically parked from manassas all the way through centreville. 234 to centreville. you into need a good 45 extra minutes. lost rain in frederick. heavy traffic by the truck scales. you jam again 118 to the spur. look at that. heavy, heavy flow of traffic. average speeds under 20 miles per hour. you need a good 30 extra minutes also to get from frederick down to the spur. you jam up past the spur on the beltway as well. outer loop jams 95 over to georgia. let's switch it over from that crowded camera and show you a look at our maps. other delays around the area you need to be aware of. crash activity in northwest. tilden street at beach drive causing delays. freeway backs up in both directions by the third street tunnel new york avenue by bladensburg slow. pennsylvania avenue inbound at branch of of a crash that's
7:05 am
causing big delays on pennsylvania. suitland parkway jams to south capitol. very heavy traffic by alabama and you can also see 295 southbound jams from 50 on past east capitol. we got you covered this morning. keep in mind metro is moving once again on the orange blue and silver out by smithsonian. earlier shuttle buses kind of caused residual delays so watch for that. steve. >> one more metro note this morning. if you're using the rhode island metro station it is opened. there was question overnight whether it would be but it did open at 5:00 a.m. on time. last night debris had fallen from the ceiling into the mezzanine area. station was closed. crews worked overnight. no injuries reported and again the station opened this morning. so did the gamble pay off? donald trump met with the president of mexico yesterday. finally delivered his address on immigration reform. >> this just as new polls show the race is tightening between donald trump and hillary clinton. maureen is here to bring this political chess match into focus. >> can we really do that. >> no. >> i'm going to do my best.
7:06 am
numbers. new fox news poll show that when you factor in third party candidates this down to a two-point race nationally. even looking at trump versus clinton the numbers have tightened but that's before you factor in what happened yesterday. donald trump taking the stage in phoenix to talk immigration. serving up the kind of red meat that first put him on the path to the gop nomination. >> will he will build a great wall along the southern border. and mexico will pay for the wall. >> that hard line book ended a a day that began with meeting between trump and mexican president enrique peña nieto. [speaking foreign language] >> the interpreter: we might disagree on certain issues but your president here mr. donald trump shows that we do have
7:07 am
>> we are united by our support for democracy, a great love for our people and a contributions of millions of mexican americans to the united states. >> trump's campaign no doubt hoping to benefit from the optics here with trump appearing presidential on a world stage. while trump tried to clarify his immigration policy in arizona left unanswered was what to do with the millions of illegal immigrants who haven't committed other crimes. hillary clinton meantime trying to win over veterans in ohio attacked trump over his visit to mexico. >> and it certainly takes more than trying to make up for a year of insults and insinuations by dropping in on our neighbors for a few hours and then flying home again, that is not how it works. >> now about that wall. well, this morning lots of people want to know if trump and pena nieto discussed it. trump said they didn't discuss who would pay f

7:34 am
he had to prove they had foreign policy chops and he could put sort of some meat behind his foreign policy credentials which he didn't have at the time, and obama, you know, so obama took a risk that way, i think, donald trump did a risk this way you didn't know how it was going to turn out. i do agree with that. however all the receipt views are in and pretty positive for him. he look diplomatic he took the stage with world leader. hillary clinton has thousands of these appearances. donald trump now has one. >> let me ask you a follow up and them then adam come back to you. he may have had more pre conferences in mexico hasn't hillary clinton had in the united states. however the people of mexico are not voting for president right now the focus is on the people of america who are actually voting for president. donald trump's base obviously you referred to the red meat that was put out there. donald trump's base obviously would latch on to that. what about those who are not his base? did yesterday's actions help or hurt that in his campaign? >> here's where he's shifting the -- he's putting a
7:35 am
that's a conversation that's high time we had in america. it's what he said. it's borders it's protecting the borders against the flow of drugs, illegal immigration and arms, and now we learn that mexico actually has a shared interest in the fact that they're having arms coming over from the united states that's very troublesome for their country. there was some common ground that was struck on that point, and we're looking at heroin -- governor hogan came out two years ago and said one of the biggest crisis facing maryland is the heroin epidemic. i was thrown for a loop. i had no idea. as i don't think a lot of people would don't get outside the beltway but when you go out into some of these cities and towns and neighborhoods and communities you see that the flow of heroin that's coming in from mexico it's devastating to them. not to mention the millions of jobs that were lost with nafta. so this is what he's -- he's shining a spotlight on these issues and these issues should be front and center in the presidential debate. >> i d

we, too, are focused on the possibility of heavy rain locally here as we get into the weekend. all right. your tropical tracker. notice the track of the storm. since you went to bed last night if you're just turning on the tv or getting on your social media, the track is further south and east modeling the guidance overnight pushing that storm further east that would be great news for us. that would mean lesser impacts locally. still think the beaches are going to be dealing with a brunt of this system as there's the potential for days and days of gusty winds, strong storm surge, rain potentially five plus inches down at the beaches over the course of saturday, sunday and perhaps even monday. but here locally, that track if it continues to push a little further east or if it wobbles back to the west will really be a big player on how much rain and how much wind we have to deal with here in the immediate washington area as we get into the second half of saturday, sunday time frame. so lot going on here. i will continue to give you updates i'm just tweeting out all the updates tucker fox

trying to accomplish any way? >> fox5 political reporter ronica cleary joins us now with her take. hello. >> hi, steve and allison. good to be here. i want to give you five key take aways i think you should take from the speech. he gave a 10-point plan these are the things most important. first thing i want to talk about is the fact that donald trump throughout the day yesterday you know that he also met and had press conference witness president of mexico. we really saw a change in his tone but definitely not in his policy and that soundbite we just listened to he really tried to present this idea that this wall is beneficial to mexico as well as the united states. he also brought home this point several times. he used this language, it is our right as a sovereign nation really bringing home the 80 that this wall is a peaceful suggestion not this controversial idea. so i would say number one, the policy is really the same. but donald trump is trying to present it in a different way. >> what do you think about the change in tone toe though from the speech in mexico versus the speech in arizona? >> it was very different. >> completely different presentations.
8:32 am
you know before donald trump introduced the event in arizona, he said, this isn't going to be typical rally because you do see a tremendous difference between his rallies and maybe his more, you know, the presentation at the press conference. but then as the speech went on in arizona, it felt more and more like rally. so by the end of the speech you'd say his tone was a same. >> slipped back into his comfort zone. >> exact exactly the he thrives off the energy of the crowd. second point he brought his home until of search priority as the american people. he tried to differentiate himself from hillary clinton not just in poll is he but saying his central priority is what immigration policy is best for the american people. where he said hillary clinton's priority is helping immigrants. again just trying to differentiate himself from hillary clinton and bringing home that idea of make american great again but americans first. the crowd loved it but it is always hard to tell you're in state -- state of arizona they once tried to privately fund a border wall along arizona and meco
8:33 am
>> most definitely. >> keep that if mine. number three this was widely controversial yesterday. the wall, okay, who is going to builder hasn't will pay for it? he said he stressed and we were all waiting for it anticipating who, f he was going to mexico was going to pay for it because i mean you both heard all that controversy yesterday. >> right. >> did he lie? >> did mexico's president say we're not paying for the wall? he made it seem like we didn't really talk about who will pay for it though we talk about the wall. >> what are we do believe here. >> i don't know. i think it's maybe a debate over semantics. i think the way that donald trump is presenting it after that meeting is, okay, maybe the president mentioned that he's not going to pay for it but we didn't have negotiation about who would pay for it. i really think that's where we're seeing a difference. he released a press release later in response to the president's tweet about saying, look, i brought this up, and he said, of course, we have differences of opinions on this, but this was not a negotiation. >>
8:34 am
deportation. this was very controversial part of donald trump's immigration plan. him saying we'll deport every single person here i think it was 11 million yesterday he still talk about deportation but he said his first hour, his first minute in office they're going to deport about 2 million people he's calling these criminal aliens. so there was still this idea that if you are here -- if you are here illegally, if do you not have documentation to be here, do you notably belong he here. but the idea that, okay, let's do this with a humanitarian evident and mission that's where people are pointing to is this a flip flop? is this a softening of tone? >> is the plan to deport people who commit serious crimes? >> he says that that's not happening under the president's administration. if you saw the speech last night, i will say no matter your party or filiation a very moving and touching moment he brought up what are called angel moms these are parents or loved ones who have lot of somebody from somebody who was h
8:35 am
trump says should not be here. okay. whether they were in a sanctuary city, undo you meaned. whether they are criminal ill yen and they told the story and name of their loved one so he's just really trying to stress i will deport anybody here whose already commit add crime immediately. anybody who commits a crime will be deported immediately. and sort of differentiate between draw this spectrum if you will. >> the last take away from you. >> last take away extreme vetting. this is -- i mean i said that's controversial. everything that he has said is large the been controversial and debated. this idea will there be a religious task. will you know when he said muslim-americans won't be admit flood this country. okay. so what he said was that if we can't adequately screen you, you are not coming in so he didn't really touch on the conversation of a religious test. but then he said, we will suspend immigration from countries like syria and libya. so changing again the conversation. changing maybe the top, the style of how we bring these topics up, b

that unwanted belly fat because we know it can be dangerous. >> it sure can. in in ways we're not familiar with. with the answers fox's beth galvin joins us this morning. what are we talking about beth. steve and allison belly fat is something doesn't look good, you have to buy a bigger belt. it's kind of unattractive and we don't like seeing our belly get a little bit bigger but it's actually a bigger issue than that, because this is going to creep you out a little bit but belly fat is actually an organ in itself. it secretes hormones and some inflammatory factors that are caused side doucines and that inflammation when it's released in the body and sort of builds up over time leads to chronic diseases like heart disease and diet diabetes and even alzheimer's disease has been linked to inflammation. so belly fat is the kind of thing that yes, it doesn't look good but there's bigger picture. it's impacting your health, long term so you really want to deal with it when you start seeing it coming on. steve and allison? does what do we do about it. >> what f
8:53 am
>> we hear exercise all the time but is there more to it? >> reporter: there's couple things you can do. one is changing up your diet a little bit. i would avoid sort of inner part of your grocery store. so the packaged foods the processed foods the snack foods. the high sugar foods. the high fat meats and full fat dairy. those are all really bad for belly fat because they get transformed almost immediately into fat specifically belly fat. the foods you want to lean towards, wholefoods, fruits and vegetables, whole grains are really great thing, fiber is a really good thing. any kind of lean meat or low fat dairy will be really good for belly fat. and then the second part of the picture is exercise. belly fat loves inn activity it hates exercise. so the more that you can combine maybe a couple of times a week doing some strength training to build up some muscle and a couple times a week doing some cardio to burn calories it's going to help you out. so you want to tag team belly fat with that mixture i'm going to get my muscles st
8:54 am
i'm going to start moving more both of those thing can really help you get rid of that excess belly fat and take care of yourself long term. >> steve and allison. >> let's switchgears a little bit. next time you go to the dentist and they say you need a crown, you say what is that? can you explain what this is and the best way to go about getting it if it's not just a cavity you need to phil? >> reporter: yes. so crown a basically this tooth shaped cap that is placed over a tooth that's maybe broken or damaged or you'd have really large filling. that filling has now come out and they can't really fill the tooth again with a filling. that's when they use a cap. a cap is really kind of a long term solution. it will last you five to 15 years. so you're looking at kind of a pretty good fix for while. the downside is that it takes some time. it takes little bit more time than filling to get a cap because you've got to come in a couple of times, get the tooth prepped you know, they may be -- you want to talk to your dentist what your options are. you could go with stainless
8:55 am
steal or gold or ceramic which is the late tough thing. and then you'll have to come back in to actually give the again tift time to create that cap or that crown and then place it over your tooth. but once do you those two appointments you'll be numbed and everything of course shouldn't hurt too much. once you get that done, you're going to be good to go for about a decade hopefully. the price is -- it is pricey. so crowns depending on the kind of material you have and where you live in the country, it could range anywhere from about $600 to about $1,500. somewhere in the middle likely for most of us. the good news, some of that will be covered by your insurance. steve and allison? >> not our insurance. >> we have the dental insurance. >> i'm no stranger to it. >> beth, thank you very much. >> thanks, women. 8:55 right now. let's check in with tucker one more time this hour. >> we'd like to give a shout out to our dentist. >> i have very few area of expertise but getting crowns is one of them. >> me, too. >> oh, my god. get ready to mortgage your
